Charlie is a pawnbroker’s assistant. Part-doorman, part-employee, he finds himself in a series of disagreements with another employee, wreaking havoc among staff and clients.

In this 6th Mutual film, the sequence featuring an alarm clock – which Charlie treats as though it were a patient being examined by a doctor – has become a famous scene. It prefigures the boiled shoe scene in “The Gold Rush”, in which Chaplin feasts on a shoe.
